Plastic Decking vs. TimberTech Decking

FREE Decking Samples >

Some people will tell you that plastic decking and composite decking are the same thing, but there are a number of key differences between these two materials. For one thing, plastic deck boards are entirely synthetic, whereas composite boards are made by combining polymers with real wood flour, making them a kind of ‘semi-synthetic’ option.

But which material is better? Both composite and plastic decking have the enormous benefit of requiring very little maintenance, but we at TimberTech UK believe that composite wood products are superior to plastic deck boards in practically every other way. Read on to find out why, or click here to order a free sample of our own composite wood decking.

Not all synthetic decking is created equal!

Environmentally-friendly Option

Plastic decking is not a very green choice, whereas TimberTech’s decking products are designed to have the smallest possible impact on the world around us. Our deck boards are made using waste wood from the furniture industry; these materials, which would otherwise be placed into landfill, are ground into ‘wood flour’ and combined with polymer to create a synthetic decking solution that’s great-looking, long-lasting, and low-maintenance too!

Guaranteed Better Quality

All TimberTech decking comes with a 25 year residential guarantee – our products are made to last! While plastic deck boards are hollow and can bow and crack underfoot, TimberTech boards are solid and exceptionally stable. And unlike timber decking – the other main alternative to plastic – you won’t have to worry about TimberTech boards fading or warping.

Low-maintenance Decking Solution

If you’re thinking of buying plastic deck boards, it’s probably because you heard about their minimal maintenance requirements. However, please bear in mind that TimberTech decking also requires practically zero maintenance – it may look like wood, but you’ll never have to spend time sanding or painting it. All it needs is the occasional jet wash to keep it looking good, leaving you time to relax and enjoy your beautiful deck.

Not as Pricey as You Think

It’s true that plastic decking is the marginally less expensive option, but bear in mind that you get what you pay for. Plastic decking often has a cheap look, and the boards are prone to bowing, flexing and possibly splitting. The chances are high that you’ll have to replace your deck over time, and so plastic decking is not the cost-effective option it may appear to be at first. Although a little more expensive than plastic decking, TimberTech’s products are still an affordable option, and if you spend a few extra pounds in the first instance, you’ll get a quality product that is guaranteed to last a long time and which looks much nicer than other synthetic decking products.
Eco Friendly

Stand out from the crowd with composite wood!

Plastic decking usually comes in just one colour: white. But TimberTech’s semi-synthetic decking range allows you to tailor your deck to your tastes, with many different styles and colours available (including Grey, Cedar, Tigerwood, and many more!) We also have a range of composite handrails in complementary colours, as well as integrated LED deck lights that will help you to complete the look. Why settle for plastic deck boards when you could have something that looks just like wood?
